A dataset of measured room impulse responses for the transition between coupled rooms

Dataset

Description

This dataset contains measured spatial room impulse responses for the transition between coupled rooms. Four coupled room pairs are included:

Meeting Room to Hallway
Office to Anechoic Chamber
Office to Kitchen
Office to Stairwell
All were recorded at the Aalto University campus using a Genelec 8331A coaxial loudspeaker and an mh acoustics Eigenmike (32 capsule spherical microphone array for fourth order spherical harmonic capture). Each transition features 101 measurements in 5cm intervals from 2.5m inside the first room to 2.5m inside the second room. Transitions are repeated four times corresponding to four different source positions: two inside each room, one which has no continuous line-of-sight with the microphone when in the opposing room, and one which retains a direct continuous line-of-sight with the microphone for all measurement positions.

The spatial room impulse responses are downloadable in either Spatially Oriented Format for Acoustics (SOFA) and Wav formats. Supplementary data includes amplitude plots, direct-to-reverberant graphs, estimated direction-of-arrival plots and scaled illustrations of room geometries and source positions.
